Our Core Capabilities
The first phase of any campaign is to determine specific goals and objectives and to create a strategic plan that integrates the necessary tools and tactics to achieve positive results. The strategic advocacy plan will integrate field intelligence and operations; coalition building; public outreach; advocate identification and mobilization; events; paid and earned media including social media; and internal communications such as reporting requirements.
Our experience running large scale advocacy, public relations, and political campaigns in the past underpins our knowledge of the elements and actions need to successfully execute a successful advocacy campaign. Novus will manage the day-to-day operations of the campaign and will provide the Genentech team with strategic counsel and advice to anticipate and meet challenges while leveraging opportunities.

Hynes has been involved in nearly every national major advocacy campaign over the past six years and has also conducted online advocacy campaigns in states for a wide variety of clients.
Third-party advocates are the most effective way of delivering your campaign message points. Novus builds effective state coalitions from our base of contacts along with client targets by using tried and true information sharing, advocacy, and trust building techniques.

Novus enjoys working closely with our clients, setting clear objectives and getting to work. Unlike some larger public affairs firms, we don’t have to worry about shareholders, a head office in New York or hitting a certain profit margin. We are extremely goal-oriented and focus on getting the job done. We take pride in the fact that we have a very high client retention rate and that many of our clients have relied on us for a significant number of years.
Effective advocacy campaigns begin with a solid plan – rooted in straightforward and concise objectives. One of the first actions we would undertake is to meet and establish a clear set of goals. Having a solid understanding of your needs will help us formulate a strategy and help implement the tactics to achieve the stated objectives. Throughout the process, we will manage the campaign and are at your disposal to discuss strategy or execution of tactics at any point. Last but not least, we will define metrics and reporting from the onset so we can be held accountable for the success of the campaign.
